Religious and Legal Plurality

A new episode of the video series “Religion and Politics – Research Projects in Focus“

Religion and law are defining forces in every society. Legal scholar Prof. Dr. Fabian Wittreck is fascinated by how they meet sometimes with elemental force and lead to conflicts, especially in societies with many different religions. The academic analyses how the public welfare and the individual freedom of conscience may be reconciled. He reports in a new episode of the video series Research Projects in Focus why the pluralisation of law perhaps benefits the powerful in particular. The film gives insight into his research project “Religious and Legal Plurality” at the Cluster of Excellence “Religion and Politics” of Münster University. (vvm)
